2010 Round-Up


It’s a wrap, folks!  2010 was a great year, and I got to finish it off with the best trip of all…a weekend in New York City with my wife!   In 2010, my travels included:

  • 54 flights
  • 114,395 miles flown
  • 8 countries (US, China, Hong Kong, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, The Netherlands)
  • 76 nights in hotels

This is up from last year, but still not as crazy as 2008.  It’s hard to know what 2011 will bring, but I suspect an increase in travel.  I’ll likely be taking week-long trips to Japan in January, Israel in February, and California in March.  There will certainly be other shorter trips in between, but those are the biggies that are on the radar.  I need to get back to China; business is really picking up there, and I miss the food!

I hope that you and yours had a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!  May 2011 be filled with peace and prosperity for us all!
